Bengaluru, Jan 19 (IANS) The Congress MLAs in Karnataka, who have been herded to a resort outside the city to keep them away from being poached, on Saturday held a meeting to discuss the political situation in the state.
“The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meet was held at Eagleton Resort. The meet discussed present political situation, drought situation and issues regarding Budget proposals,” the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) said in a statement.
The legislators were shifted to the private resort on the city outskirts on Friday night after a CLP meeting was chaired by CLP leader Siddaramaiah at the state legislature building Vidhana Soudha, as a show of legislators’ strength.
The Congress party over the past week has been accusing the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of allegedly poaching its legislators.
Karnataka Congress in-charge K.C. Venugopal will interact with the party legislators on Sunday, state unit President Dinesh Gundu Rao tweeted.
“K.C. Venugopal will interact individually with our MLAs regarding parliamentary elections and decision on our future course of action will be taken,” Rao tweeted.
